Read on to learn more about different types of lilies and their meanings so that you can choose the perfect one for your next major milestone.

What are the occasions we use flowers?

Flowers make any occasion special – from birthdays to anniversaries. We use their beauty and fragrant aroma to set the mood for celebrations throughout the year. 


Their symbolism creates a feeling of love, admiration, and joy that enhances any gathering. Weddings are incomplete without an array of flowers adorning the bride, groom, venue, and decorations. 


Flowers are also used to pay homage to funeral services as well as honor someone’s accomplishments with a congratulatory bouquet. Wherever you go, whatever you do, flowers always bring an air of elegance and admiration that can never be replaced.

What occasions are lilies for?

Lilies are beautiful flowers and are often used to signify special yearly holidays as well as specific occasions. During Easter, they symbolize rebirth and the new life that comes with springtime. 


For funerals, it is believed that these flowers bring comfort to those in mourning since their pristine beauty captures the attention at such a somber event. When it comes to Weddings and Anniversaries, everyone in attendance is feeling love and optimism for the future; lilies represent a graceful elegance that pairs perfectly with that special occasion. 


Finally, we have housewarming celebrations! Lilies make these events brighter due to how cheerful they look amongst decorations. They come in many different sizes and colors so it’s an easy way to add some character to any gift basket you give your friends or family. 


Regardless of what the occasion may be, lilies will always show that you care.

What month does a lily represent?

For those in the know, May is the month associated with lilies. The lily is a symbol of purity, longevity, and innocence, three attributes given to many in their early years of life. 


As such, it has been adopted by parents to represent the purity and innocence of their child’s birth month. A rich history surrounds this blossom, with its connection to Roman Goddess Juno. 


Many believe that Juno watches over the protection of women and ultimately bestowed her blessing upon newly married couples who carried lilies on their wedding day. Although we can never know for certain why this particular flower has come to signify a special month of the year, it certainly looks beautiful when decorating homes during this time of the year!

Can you give lilies as a gift?

Lilies make a wonderful and thoughtful gift for any occasion! Not only are they stunning and sophisticated, but they symbolize relationships, fertility, joy, and abundance. 


The gentle curves of their petals also evoke thoughts of renewal and purity, so they make an excellent choice to brighten someone’s special day. And best of all, you don’t need to be a flower expert or spend money on an expensive bouquet – just a single stem will bring plenty of happiness! 


Whatever the message you want to convey‑whether it’s “congratulations” or “thinking of you,” lilies are sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face.

To Sum it up

Overall, lily flowers can make any event extra special. With their fragrant smell and a wide array of available colors, you’re sure to find a unique bouquet for your special occasion. 


Whether you’re delighting a friend or closing a business deal – lilies are the perfect way to show your appreciation. It’s also easy to incorporate lilies into existing floral arrangements as they have an elegant appearance that blends nicely with almost any other flower variety. 


Finally, don’t forget that ‘lily’ is rooted in Latin and Greek and translates to ‘purity and innocence’ making it the ideal flower choice for those looking for something simple yet meaningful—reminding us of life’s most precious moments.

My name is Lily Reed, and this blog is about.... lilies!
Yes, I know. It's a true coincidence, but not really. My mother really loves this flower; she named me after him!
My mother started growing lilies when she was pregnant with me after the doctor told her not to move from the bed when she was 6 months pregnant. So it's been a special bond for us.
